We have a great selection of songs ready to record. Our first CD, Nikki's Room won "Best CD" at the 2005 MAMAS (Madison Area Music Awards). For this CD, Gregory Thornburg and myself will work with award winning engineer / producer Brian Daly, at DNA studios in Madison, WI. This has been a dream of mine since working with Brian on Judi, which he recorded and produced from Nikki's Room. There will be at least one track on the new release (I Fall Down) from salvaged recordings featuring our sorely missed friend and irreplaceable, one of a kind avant cellist, Steve Pingry. Vanessa Tortolano will make an appearance as will guitar wizard Brad Graham. We will also have a surprise bassist joining the project. Someone I've secretly been dying to play with for a long time. This will be a full length CD of ten songs. The CD will reflect where we are currently with some exciting new and somewhat un-subvocal-like material. The focus will be to create an album that reflects what we are doing in performance these days, a drum and guitar duo. So... we need to fund the tracking. We would hope that enough people would like to have another subvocal release sometime before the end of this century, say about three hundred of you? (It has been 7 plus years - Its time) You can secure your copy of the new CD before we even record it AND know that you helped make it happen. $3000.00 will not cover all the expenses of this project but it will put us over the hump and get us out of the studio. Yes, I would love to have more cash and if we get more than our goal, it will all go towards making this CD be intense and wonderful. We are on a small budget as far as recording CD's goes. Total costs include tracking, mixing, mastering and duplication. This cash will go towards the tracking and mixing and maybe mastering. Work should be finished by the end of the year. We are well rehearsed, the songs are strong and we are ready to go. Thank you for your interest in subvocal. You can hear some roughs of the songs here. Thanks for taking the time to check us out.

Mark.
